IFC's 5th Private Education Conference

Tuesday, 06 March 2012


IFC’s international conference is a unique event in the global education calendar – it brings together senior institutional leaders of private institutions from around the world. Traditionally the IFC conference has been a ‘closed’ event, only available to those institutions working in partnership with IFC. In 2012 there will be two significant changes to the conference: it will move from Washington, DC to Dubai, UAE and it will combine the traditional approach of ‘partners only’ with a second day open to others active in private education globally.

This is your opportunity to ‘Make Global Connections’ through IFC’s 5th International Private Education Conference which will be held March 6 and 7, 2012.

The conference will feature education experts addressing important issues for both the private and public sector on:

  • The Global Skills Agenda
  • Technology in Education
  • The Role of Equity in Private Education
  • Knowing Your Market
  • Maintaining Quality in Growth
  • Beyond Graduation – Supporting Student Employment

Who should attend?

  • Chief Executives of private education institutions
  • Chief Finance Officers of private education institutions
  • Members of private education associations
  • Policy makers with local and national government
  • Consultants engaged in the education sector
  • Service providers to the education sector
